Why Work With Diversity Abroad for Talent Acquisition?
Unique talent solutions for organizations interested in connecting with diverse and globally minded young leaders
Whether national or international, to effectively take on the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities in the 21st century, organizations must employ individuals with a global perspective and who are comfortable and effective engaging with difference. While employers may not readily perceive global education as a valuable experience for future employees, the tangible and intangible skills derived from such experiences are undeniably valuable. These skills include, but are not limited to:
- Cross-cultural communication
- Collaborative problem solving
- Adaptable & greater tolerance for difference
- Understanding of diverse cultures
- Proficiency in foreign language
- Experience in working with foreign or multinational companies
Unfortunately, students of color, first-generation college students, and students with high financial needs are traditionally underrepresented in high impact activities such as global education. Ultimately, that puts these students at a disadvantage when applying for positions in industries or for admission to competitive graduate programs. Diversity Abroad’s work ensures that students from diverse backgrounds have equitable access to global educational opportunities. Additionally, we mentor students and help them leverage their global experience to be more effective leaders in the organizations they decide to join.
